Why is it that when a patient needs help, asks for help and asks for admission to hospital or an increase in medication, they get virtually no response and definitely no support, small increase in meds (not as high as a previous prescription level) No offer of hospital at all for a break from these huge problems going on that are making me ill. Despite my best friend saying I should be in hospital!
A few years back the same psych insisted I was ill despite my telling him I really wasn't, I didn't want to be in hospital, so I got Sectioned twice and forced to have several medications with horrid side effects. Refused freedom and basic human rights in a horrible building with terrible facilities for weeks.
IS this some weird game they play so they take everything we say and then assume the opposite! Where do they get this treatment ideas from , did they all get the same uni lecture that tells them to oppose any or every suggestion from the patient and always do the direct opposite of what they want?
Withdraw support???!!! What the heck is that all about, what do they think will happen. Why do they do the opposite? Maybe they do want us to end it and get us off the books. It's a very bad show and totally unhelpful. It leaves patients feeling they have no control of their condition and no confidence in the psych in any direction. Are we being punished for daring to be ill again when on their medications?
This was decent psych I've seen for 8-9 years and he's usually good but I will have trouble trusting him for anything from here on. Am considering not going back after this stab in the back.
At times like this you begin to wonder who you can trust with anything. If I see them again it will probably be a silent head down meeting and what's the point going if that's the case.
What would you do? I have schizoaffective disorder (or not as the case may be)
